Beaches Jazz Festival coming to Woodbine Park – July 16 & 17 2016

The Beaches Jazz Festival is a Toronto Tradition. Many have grown up with it – literally. 2016 will be the 28th rendition of the Beaches Jazz Festival.

Where?

At Woodbine Park – east end of Toronto by the Lake. Don’t drive. Take the Red Rockets to Woodbine Subway Station and a bus will take you down to the lake and Woodbine Park.

The Main Stage at Woodbine park has always had really good sound. It’s almost like bowl, as there is a hill behind the stage area. Great sound system.

The centre audience area has Food vendors all around. There is a 2nd stage , which they started a few years back.

Cost?

No Charge – it’s Free. A really great way to spend an afternoon with your lover or your family. For some reason the weather has always bee good the weekend of of the Jazz Fest at Woodbine. We’ll see next weekend.
